2009 Chen Sheng Hao "Fu Yuan Chang" Raw Pu-erh Tea Cake of Yi Wu
Brand: Chen Sheng Hao
Chen Sheng Hao is a brand of Pu-erh that was started in 2008 by Mr. Chen Sheng He, a long time tea drinker and Guangdong native. In 2008 he signed a contract with more than 100 Lao Ban Zhang villagers for exclusive rights to their harvest. It was after this that Chen Sheng Hao brand pu-erh became known and soon after he began to produce teas from Yi Wu, Naka, Nan Nuo and Bu Lang as well.
The tea has been stored in Guangdong since 2009 and the hot and humid storage has helped it along by transforming it's bitter and astringent character into something rich and complex. Instead of just theorizing about how Cheng Sheng Hao will age, why not try this and get to know just how wonderfully these cakes will age!
Fu Yuan Chang (lit Fu Yuan Factory) refers to an old Yi Wu tea factory that Mr. Chen purchased in 2008 to produce Yi Wu area cakes. This 2009 Fu Yuan Chang is one of the first productions under the Fu Yuan Chang sub-brand.
** Some wrappers may be bug-bitten with little holes in the paper. There may also be some dust between the wrapper and the cake. Rinse tea once or twice briefly before drinking! If you are squeamish please don't order this tea!
